Acoustic Reflectometry Abnormal
Meaning of: transmitral spectral doppler flow pattern is abnormal for age. Isolated premature ventricular contractions. Normal 24 hour holter exam.?
The device sends out a sound that bounces off the eardrum and then measures the eardrum's mobility. Normal movement generates "greater than 120". If there is fluid behind the drum dampening the movement the number can be as low as 40. It's a quick and easy measurement ...Read more
Diastolic component: This is the velocity of the flow crossing your mitral valve. The flow from the upper chamber (Left Atrium) to Left Ventricle is regulated by the mitral valve. - Depending on the pressure, volume, muscle of the left ventricle the way the blood goes from atrium to ventricle may vary - Velocities can tell your cardiologist the level of impairment in diastole of ir normal. ...Read more
Diastolic dysfunctio: It is a sign of abnormal filling during the resting phase of the cardiac cycle (diastole). It may be just impaired relaxation (the mildest form) or actually indicative of different degrees of restricted filling. There are 4 recognized stages. The mildest is extremely common and present in most people >age 40. The 4th stage is extremely rare and present only in rare diseases like cardiac amyloid. ...Read more
Is hypoechoic lesion with some irregular margins no doppler flow focal taller than wide morphology and some questionable posterior acoustic shadowing.
What was scanned?: This may not be the forum to answer your questions, as we are limited to 400 characters in our response. You are best off using HealthTap Prime to upload the entire report or discussing the report with the doctor who ordered the scan. From your wording, it seems as if it's an ultrasound scan. What part of the body? What symptoms were you having? This report may not explain anything except artifact ...Read more
Pelvic pain. Irregular bleeding. Endometrial echo measure 12 mm in thickness. Outline of the endometrial echo is smooth. Unremarkable ovariesIs ok?
Eye of Beholder: The "eye ball" observation of "volume loss for age" is extremely subjective with much intra and interobserver variation. That means readers often don't agree and are sometimes not even consistent when the same reader re-examines an image twice. Computer programs are being developed to analyse brain volumes accurately and precisely but are not in general clinical use yet. My advice, don't sweat it. ...Read more
Sinus tachycardia~t wave abnormality, consider inferior ischemia~abnormal ecg~when compared with ECG of 10-aug-2013 11:38, ~questionable change in qrs?
Non-specific: You need a stress test. It appears that you've had one. If it's been >1 year, it should be repeated now and done with an imaging modality such as echo or nuclear perfusion imaging. A resting ekg is a notoriously inaccurate test, especially in middle-aged women. (that's not sexism, it's science). There are many (most) false positives. ...Read more
Mri reading need interpretation , focal swelling with heterogenous abnormal signal in the spinal coed atc5-c6 level suggesting neoplasm has improved?
Need to discuss with: As stated, this sounds as if you had a type of previous "neoplasm" and the test is showing an improvement in the swelling around certain areas of your neck at c5-6. Possibly the radiologist did not know your history of previous neck surgery in the area. I recommend you have the ordering dr discuss your hx and the findings with the radiologist and then discuss in detail with you. Best wishes. ...Read more
Urinalysis gross exam occult blood abnormal 3+, WBC 6-10 abnormal and RBC 4-10 abnormal, color amber abnormal but clear, what can cause this result?
What are some reasons my lubar MRI impression reads abnormal marrow signal suggestive for diffuse marrow replacement process. ?
Need to discuss with Dr.: Diffuse marrow replacement processes can be seen on mri. The biggest concerns are anemia, metastatic disease and lymphoma/leukemia among others. Your doctor will need to correlate this finding with other laboratory and clinical findings in order to arrive at a proper diagnosis. ...Read more
Depends: Sinus bradycardia can be normal in a fit individual. Septal infarct age undetermined may also be a normal variant, but also possibly indicate previous injury to the heart. You might want to consider getting further evaluation, such as a stress treadmill ECG test. Depending on various associated healthy issues, this might need to be combined with imaging (nuclear or ultrasonography). ...Read more
Fibre length, overall signal attenuation for an optical link, coupling loss exam, what are these?
Yes, by tracing only: It is an abnormal ekg by reading of the tracing but what is most important is the ekg in relation to a good history and clinical exam. Questions to ask: do you have a past history of heart disease, high BP, diabetes, smoking? Do you have chest pain/jaw pain/pain down L arm? Is your BP high on exam? Any of these findings along with the above ekg is a MAJOR concern. Please talk with your doctor!! ...Read more
Mammogram shows macro calcifications,& bilateral axillary sub cm nodes. Ultrasound shows normal readings. Strong family history of bc &uterine cancer.
Calcifications: Whether or not calcifications need to be biopsied primarily depends on their size, shape, and distribution. If they are typically benign based on those criteria, biopsy is usually not indicated. "Sub centimeter" axillary lymph nodes are normal findings. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Pap smear results. Epithelial cell abnormality, asc-us, endocervical home component present. Partially obscuring inflammation. Normal?
No: ASCUS stands for "atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance." You should follow-up with your OB/GYN for appropriate follow-up as your past history will be needed for proper management. ...Read more
What does colonic mucosa with focal glandular atypia suggestive of diminutive, early adenomatous polyp mean?
Not cancer: The description you gave is not a cause for any concern. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
I received a diagnosis of "Sinus Rhythm, T Wave Abnormality in anterior leads, borderline abnormal for age (29) and gender (F). Abnormal ECG. Worried?
Cardiologist: These T wave abnormalities are nonspecific and it's important to compare them to any prior EKG if one is available. If none are available the findings may not necessarily be due to any cardiac pathology and may even be a normal variant in a young woman. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and examine you and recommend further testing like an echocardiogram if deemed advisable. ...Read more
Iam 65 years old abnormal ecg
Normal sinus rhythm
Possible inferior infarction , age undetermined
ST& T wave abnormality, consider lateral ischemia?
Automated ECG: The automated ECG interpretation that appears on a 12 lead ECG printout must always be viewed with a grain (or two) of salt. The best person to evaluate your ECG is your doctor. Period. The machine is famous for misinterpretation. Go see your doctor. Have a history and physical done. Then have him/her look at your ECG. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
